Back to School with Kwik Stix

I love finding great materials for my classroom!  Especially those that my kids love just as much as I do!  For several years now, Kwik Stix have been a staple in my first grade classroom.  If you are not familiar with them, here's a little info:  Kwik Stix are Tempera Paint Sticks.  They allow little ones to paint without the huge mess and involvement of cups, smocks, brushes, or water.  To use, just uncap the stick, twist, and paint.  Kwik Stix have a wonderful, fast-drying formula that allows them to dry in just 90 seconds!!  They can be used on paper, cardboard, wood, or canvas.

Kwik Stix have been a part of my inside recess activitie for the past two years.  However, recently, I decided to incorporate them into our literacy center time.  I wanted a new activity for my students to do during centers that reviewed the sight words they learned in kindergarten.  Reviewing the previous year's words at the start of the year is a great review for kids!  I created some word booklets with a chunky font that would allow the kids to paint their words with Kwik Stix!  Let's just say that this activity has been a HIT!  I attest it all to the incorporation of the paint sticks!  I know that I will be using Kwik Stix many more times in my center rotation as the year continues!
